:wave:trouble with buying these poor examples is the breeder then thinks he is doing ok in selling them and therfore breeds more. in my experience of breeders that dont know the age is they age them by size rather then true ag, a guy near us sold some 9 month olds at market by the eye the auctioner sold them as small stores (to the trained eye the rear end of the boars should have given the age away)
